About

FOR OSTLAND

"Alternately uneasy, bloodthirsty and painfully beautiful, For Ostland is a conflicted record that adds an unexpected new voice to the modern technoid post-punk dialogue." - Resident Advisor

"The group unfurl smoldering cinematic soundscapes, strange slivers of shadowy sound, moaning fragmented melodies, all over a haunting heartbeat like pulse, a sort of slo-mo electronica, laced with strange hummed/sung vocals" - Aquarius Records Record of the Week

"'Ghosts And Lovers' takes a distant four-to-the-floor to cold hymnal territory. When the searing guitars finally hit, it turns into a shoegaze explosion that clouds everything – a burial and an act of pushing away." - RCRD LBL

"Filled with dirges of guitar reminiscent of Sunn O))), Godspeed-esque post-rock crescendos, and dense layers of droning synths, Ostland's charred landscape is ever-changing yet consistently desolate." - Ad Hoc

"So not only is [Ghosts and Lovers] overbearing, noisy, and emotionally crushing, but it's a Marissa Nadler cover, too." - The Needle Drop

GHOSTS AND VERSIONS

"[Mark Verbos' Sordid Future Mix] layers the vocals of the Nihiti version with the futurism of a late-night cyberpunk rave." - FACT Magazine

FACED WITH SPLENDOR

pinko morning music video

"Folky, but still a bit gloomy, the vocals are fantastic, lush intricate harmonies, slipping from croon to falsetto and back again, dark and dramatic, moody and moving, a little seventies British acid folk, a little bit modern psych folk, the strings soar and sing, adding tension and drama, the vocals and guitar often playing off each other..." - Aquarius Records

"A fairly surprising departure from their past psychedelic sound, the new EP presents an introduction of more acoustic elements, revealing nihiti's hidden expertise in simple songwriting." - Dazed & Confused

"Everything seems brightly lit and in focus here. From the song's natural evolution with varied acoustic instrumentation to the careful melody, nothing is out of place." - Tiny Mix Tapes

"Pinko Morning removes electronic elements from nihiti's music while retaining the dark undertones the band is known for. - Altered Zones


OTHER PEOPLE'S MEMORIES

"There’s not a lot on [nihiti’s] Other People’s Memories that sounds much like anything else currently happening, unless there’s some cadre of well-presented electroacoustic savants out there churning out music of this gloss and caliber." – Dusted Magazine

"nihiti… relies on the coexistence of electronic music with acoustic instruments to create a sound that is alternately tense, foreboding, and intricate in the most intriguing ways… A cerebral effort in line with This Heat, late-period Talk Talk, Gastr del Sol, and other heavy hitters of recent decades, and a group that is worth the considerable effort to investigate." – Other Music Featured Pick, 1/4/2011

"Song structures weave from straight up danceable near-goth anthems, to completely disassembled and almost entirely heartbreaking ambient pieces… completely disassembling the structural elements of [these] seemingly paint-by-numbers pseudo-genres and very, very genuinely and very, very creatively forcing something new to exist." – Insound.com Record of the Week

"nihiti’s album, other people’s memories is a luxurious excursion across dazzling dreamscapes, an amalgam of progressive rock, non poh faced IDM, and playful experimentalism which make you feel like you were somewhere else without being in between places." – 20jazzfunkgreats.co.uk
